Get Toned Arms Fast
TONE those arms before you hit the beach!
YES, it is possible – and you have enough time to get sexy arms for that long-awaited summer vacation. Here are some easy-to-follow tips:
1. Change Your Position: When doing bicep curls make sure to perform them with three hand positions: palms up, palms down, and thumbs to the side.
2. Use That Stability Ball: It’s not just for great abs or toned legs, the ball can help you tone those arms, too. Experts explain that the stability ball will engage your core and amplify the results you get from chest exercises. Shape.com suggest you try the single-arm chest fly on the ball: Start with your shoulders on the ball, hips lifted, and both hands over your chest holding light weights. Slowly lower one arm extended to the side, pause, and return to centre. Perform 15 repetitions on each arm.
3. Row, Row, Row Your Boat: Okay, you don’t have to have a boat, but you can start rowing at the gym. Rowing can give you spectacular arms so make sure to include it in your workout.
4. Plank It, Baby: What a great way to tone the whole body, right?
Experts explain that while standard planks are a great way to strengthen your arms and core, to really take your arm toning up a notch, place one hand on a paper plate. Here’s how: Keeping your arms straight (and both feet planted shoulderwidth apart), circle the plate 10 times clockwise and 10 times counter-clockwise. Switch arms and repeat.
